Oh my Dear Josie! You have so much personality, little girl. Your happy, smiling face is the best part of my day. You are always happy.

You are a half-year-old! Holy moly!

Happy Half Birthday, Princess!


  • Popped your first tooth on your bottom left side. This could explain your inconsolable crying only nights before I saw this tooth. You never, ever cry like that, so it definitely through me for a loop. I called the midnight pedi and cried as I held you until I had to leave for work that following morning.
  • Starting to sit up on your own when lying inclined on a pillow or mommy’s lap.
  • Can sit on your own now, without our help holding you in the sitting position. But you still need someone to watch just in case you tip over.
  • Know when we walk out of the room and whine or make “don’t go, don’t do” noises to get us to turn around and look at you. You always give that shy gummy smile. You certainly know when mommy is out of sight.
  • Hold your arms out and reach for me. And make little noises that are saying, “Pick me up!”
  • Absolutely will not take any formula, what-so-ever. But that’s okay baby girl. I understand.
  • We tried giving you some sweet potatoes but you gagged and cried. We will try again in another week or so. I don’t think you’re quite ready for foods yet.
  • Laughing a lot more now. And I can actually get you to laugh now. Daddy was the only one to make you laugh before.
  • Grabbing things a lot easier now. Passing them from hand to hand and even reaching for toys out of your reach and working so hard to grab them. I feel like you may be on the move very soon.
  • Love crinkle toys. And playing with the wipes because they make similar sounds.
  • Moved you into your own bedroom. And you’re doing fantastic. It was sad for mommy at first, but I’m doing better now that we have a better baby monitor.
  • Not wearing mittens anymore. But you’ve also stopped scratching yourself so much. You learned how to take them off yourself.
  • Skin is finally getting soft and baby-like.
  • Must keep long sleeves and leggings on you. Otherwise you scratch at your legs and arms and if we let you scratch then they will eventually weep and the eczema will return.
  • Smiling a lot at Kitty.
  • Love watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
  • Letting me trim your nails.
  • Still taking naps throughout the day.
  • Still sleeping through the night.
  • Getting your little feet and legs caught in the cribs slates. So we do need to buy you a bumper.
  • Starting to cool down in the mornings, so we have the windows open and you like to look outside.
  • Sitting better in your jumper now.
  • Mama has started to breast pump again and is slowly bringing back her milk. More on this in another post.
  • We have about one month left of frozen milk.
  • Not really fans of Huggies diapers, but Costco sells them cheap.
  • The best thing for your skin is plain old Vaseline. It works wonders.
  • Love to put your feet in your mouth.
  • Mommy made you a bunch of hair bows.
  • Had your 6-month wellness visit with vaccinations. You are tall for your age, which makes you look a lot skinnier than you really are.
  • Crying real big watery tears.
  • Can tell when you are in pain. You have a certain high-pitched cry that just breaks my heart.
  • Constantly smiling. At everyone. Your smile is so heartwarming and contagious
  • You are always happy, always making eye contact, always so secure, very independent, and smart.
  • Easily distracted and we have to rock you to sleep in your nursing chair with no noise. I really enjoy it. It’s my own peaceful ending to my day rocking you to sleep.
  • Stretching out your feet and twirling them in every which way.
  • So interested in what we are eating. You watch the fork from the plate to my mouth every time we eat dinner.
  • So good when we take you out to run errands. You never, ever cry.
  • You love your baby carriers. We use Baby Bjorn. Daddy uses the bigger version and I use the smaller one.
  • Can push up on your arms now while you are on your tummy but not for very long yet.
  • Love to stick out your tongue, especially to granny when you talk to her on face time.
  • Ticklish on the sides of your tummy and your armpits.
  • Have the longest most beautiful eyelashes.
  • Hair has started to turn lighter. It is so beautiful.
  • Really not putting much into your mouth like most babies. Except Sophie and blankets.
  • So interested to know what we are doing on our iPhone. Every time we pick it up you look with curiosity.
  • Definitely know when the camera is being used. You and give us a great big smile every time. You are so photogenic.

  1. Oh my goodness! She is so beautiful! I think she and Abby share some of the same “curiosity” faces. Too cute. You are looking wonderful too, Friend. Hope everything is okay with you needing to pump again and everything.
